US Equality Laws That Never Passed
America is the land of the free, but based on several US equality laws that never passed, it’s not exactly the land of fairness and equity. Women, as well as people of color, immigrants, and the LGBTQ community, have been fighting for equal rights for almost a century. And, despite the wins (i.e. Roe v. Wade, marriage equality, DACA, etc.), there’s still a long way to go. For many marginalized groups, their right to fair and equal treatment isn’t a guarantee. The following US equality laws that never passed show what could have been.
Most LGBTQ Unfriendly Locations in the World
Despite signs of progress on the home front, there are still several LGBTQ unfriendly locations both in the US and around the world. Traveling has its fair share of headaches for everyone, but for LGBTQ travelers, there’s also the possibility of harassment, discrimination, and even legal trouble. Vacation research extends far beyond hotels, museums, and nightlife. However, there are amazing LGBTQ resorts out there. But, LGBTQ travelers must also check laws about homosexuality and the frequency of anti-gay violence at their destination. And, even with thorough research, there’s still the potential for scary run-ins upon arrival.
